Onell Design knows how to name toys so nobody could possibly have an existing trademark on them. Zorennor Exploration Division Commander Sullkren a simple repaint with a complicated name. Well, to call it "simple" is unfair-- it's pretty excellent, and the wave of releases reminded me a lot of some old space toys. The figure was shipped in a clear plastic baggie with no labels or lettering, so no photo was included. The figure is cast in a white-ish plastic with primarily black and grey markings, plus some blue in the eyes. It never ceases to amaze me how well these guys turn out given we're dealing with maybe the 50th redeco of the same mold.
The Sullkren has bits and pieces from existing Sarvos and Scar Pheyden heads, painted in this new colorway. The figure has several swivel joints and at each point of articulation, may be completely dismantled and put together more or less any way you see fit thanks to the peg system. (Many of you know this, but for those of you who don't, it's pretty fun to mess with.) Arms and legs may be swapped, blending multiple figure colors together or just doing simple things like sitting. Unlike most Hasbro or Mattel figures, these things can actually sit. You have no idea how much this pleases me.
Onell figures are basically a mutation of 1980s sculpting know-how with 21st century technology. Which means, you get a good, simple toy mold that works and is made in China cheaply. For a roughly 3-inch figure, $8 isn't exactly a dirt-cheap bargain but given how few of these were likely made, it's not a bad deal. While you may not need several of these in your collection, I'd still say it's worth dropping about $20 on Glyos figures just to give them a shot. You'll probably want more, but you may not necessarily want every figure in every color. Lately, I've been picking figures based on new molds as available plus interesting plastic colors, which is why I now own two pink glittery figures. They really do look nifty!
Most figures from Onell Design used to stay in stock for a few weeks or even months, but lately the line has started to become sort of Matty Collector-popular with several figures selling out in minutes or a couple of hours, and most new releases vanishing in a few days. For a small company, this is pretty fascinating to watch and I really do hope more companies pop up with a similar product line. (As in, small runs, cool toys, and nice people at the helm.)
